It is distinguished from the related T. vagans Pedley by the presence of sparse hairs on cypselae and longer leaves with an acuminate apex. Notes will be presented on distinctive features, habitat, phenology and conservation status, along with detailed illustrations, images, and a distribution map. The ongoing molecular phylogeny study of this species will also be introduced.
